Episode 57: Blade Runner
We're taking the ultimate cinematic empathy test as we watch the 1982 science fiction noir Blade Runner. Listen in as we discuss the sociological implications of using replicants as slave labor, identify changes in the various releases of the movie, and reflect on what an asshole Rick Deckard is. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and bored voice-overs. Also please be advised that we do discuss a scene of sexual assault that occurs in the film.
